Hopefully visitors to my blog are by now aware that I have a book, but perhaps there are those who don’t know that I am also a songwriter/musician – was one long before I was lucky enough to be picked up as an author by All Things That Matter Press. My music has been sort of back-burner lately, due to the mechanics of getting the book ready and then working to get the word out that it exists. Well, to borrow from the Blues Brothers, though they’re certainly not the first to use the phrase, only the most famous, “We’re getting the band back together”.
Soooo… , in an effort to simplify my life I’ve decided to include promo for my band The Primatives here on my blog with everything else. The following is the message I sent out this last Friday for upcoming Primatives events.
Dear friends and fans of The Primatives. We’re not dead, but have only been sleeping. Well, not exactly sleeping – very busy actually with all manner of things that have kept us from performing.
Anyway, we’re coming back to life this weekend and the next. Tomorrow night, Aug. 21st, we’re at The Palace in New Vrndavn, WV. We’ll be one of two opening acts for Devananda Pandit and his band. It’ll be a great evening of spiritually inspired folk music that rocks, no doubt about that. The Primatives go on at 7:45 pm as we first back up story teller extraordinare, Sankirtana Das, then The Primatives, then Krypamaya das & Caitanya Bhagavat das.
The Devananda show begins at 8:35.
Then next Saturday, Aug. 28th The Primatives return to the annual Rock The Quarry benefit for The Panhandle Trail in Collier Township, just outside of Pittsburgh. The Primatives have been somewhat of an institution at this event over the last years. We go on at 4:20 PM. Southern rock band Toast is the featured band of the evening (the event actually starts Friday and ends Saturday night.) Our friend Jordan Umbach starts the day off at noon.
If you have the time and the inclination, I’ve attached a flyer in PDF format with the entire schedule of the 2 day long Rock The Quarry event.
Hope to see you, Hope you’re all having a good summer, Jesse and Lilasuka (The Primatives)
